Lol, I went for different Ram instead

The H100 is a good cooler, but you need to replace the fans or put them on a controller/resistor as the stock ones are reportedly loud as buggery.

I retract my suggestion then, Sir.

The H60 is excellent - I have experimented a bit with OC'ing raising the CPU from 2.80 to 4.00 Ghz (I haven't managed to get it stable yet) and the H60 certainly keeps the CPU well within tolerances.

I did the opposite, Golden. I traded an H 50 for a Noctua NH-D14.

Hehe. I must confess my thermal-pasting skills are absolutely rubbish, so the H60 suites me perfectly as it has a pre-installed film of paste on it

ha ha, I did say earlier that I could turn the fan around, would that be as efficient though? Well...I suppose given the circumstances the answer would be yes actually :P.

Is the h60 a single or dual fan setup? If single, is it best to put the fan as an exhaust on the outside? or inside? Or an intake (I wouldn't think an intake would work...you would be blowing warm air into your computer...

As for the h100, I would replace the fans, I have a NZXT Sentry 2 fan controller, although I may be reaching the point of more fans than the controller can handle :P Once again, where do the fans sit? I would like to get a Bitfenix Shenobi, so I would mount it on top, and if the fans were going to be above the radiator, and quite visible, I would use my 2 Silverstone Air Penetrators for it. That is...if the Shenobi can actually fit a dual 120mm radiator, anyone know the answer to that?

The H60 comes with a single fan as standard, but you can easily add a second fan too - I use mine as an exhaust on the outside of the radiator.

Hmmm...that certainly makes the h60 a very tempting option, it looks very nice and would certainly fit in any case I would pick (I am definitely upgrading my antec 300 to something with a few more features and better looks).
